He spent a lot of time with me explaining what was going on in my hip, when I would need replacement, what the replacement procedure entailed, what I could do after surgery, what the recovery would be like. I had the surgery and things went great for the first week and then I got an inflammation in one of the muscles. He and his staff quickly attended to the problem and now six weeks after surgery, I am doing great. I have also had a knee replacement by him and everything went great.

I was scared to death about having hip surgery...then I met Dr. Botero. He and his staff are awesome. Everyone was so kind, patient, knowledgeable...and they made me feel special. The experience from start to finish went so smoothly, (I just did water aerobics for the first time in years!) I'm almost looking forward to having my second hip done (almost.) I am looking forward to being a whole new person in only a few months. Before my surgery, I was not able to stand up straight and every time

Dr. Botero performed a minimally-invasive hip replacement. He and his staff are remarkable! Dr. Botero is highly skilled, professional and personable. He took his time in explaining the surgery procedure and explained in detail what to anticipate post-op. I cannot say enough good things about him and his entire staff! I highly recommend him!

I am so impressed by Dr. Botero's knowledge and skill. He did a knee replacement for me using a minimally invasive technique and within a few weeks I began to feel less pain that before the surgery. The first appointment convinced me I made the right decision in selecting Dr. Botero. Without any prompting, he knew the pain I was experiencing and took the time to explain how the knee replacement surgery would make my everyday activities better.

Dr. Botero and his staff is amazing! I returned to work within two weeks of a total hip replacement. I am 8 weeks out now and have literally NO PAIN! I'm able to walk, exercise, climb stairs, hike, keep up with my kids, and myriad things I wasn't able to do before the surgery. His skill and knowledge has given me a quality of life that I didn't think possible after 23 years of hip/joint issues. He is the best!

Dr. Botero performed a minimally-invasive knee replacement on me in February 2018. As a veteran on joint replacements due to osteoarthritis, I can say that is was the best experience I've ever had. I strongly recommend the minimally-invasive surgery and Dr. Botero specifically. At my first appointment, he took all the time needed to explain the pros and cons. The surgery process went off without a hitch. 7 weeks later I have no pain and just a little stiffness that will work itself out.

Dr. Botero is an amazing surgeon who has the skill, training & experience to perform minimally invasive surgeries on the hips and knees. A relatively new way of replacing joints, the patient usually recovers much faster due replacement without muscle invasion. We are blessed to have Dr. Botero in Knoxville! In 2016 I had total hip replacement & was back at work in 4 wks. In Sept. 2017 I had total knee & am recovering quickly. Professional, patient-friendly & thorough describes Dr. Botero.

Dr. Botero did my right total hip replacement and I could not have had a better experience. His entire staff is very kind and professional. I went from taking a a handful of pain pills a day to being completely pain free thanks to Dr. Botero. I would recommend Dr. Botero to anyone suffering from hip or knee arthritis.

Dr. Botero did my hip replacement 3 weeks ago. My recovery has been amazing and much easier than expected. I used a walker for a couple days, a cane for another 3 and then, I was on my way without any assistance. I had very little pain and did not need pain medication after a couple of days. I followed the well presented instructions in a notebook to the tee. I did all the exercises prior to surgery and after, along with physical therapy. I was driving in 12 days. Highly recommend KOC!!!
